Sounding "open and exhilarating" isn't dependent on the technology. It's all about the mix. You enjoyed the mix for Divergent.

Divergent could have been in Atmos and would have sounded identical....

My twin LLT's were pretty close to what I get (deep bass) now with over twelve sealed 18's.

Pretty crazy.

That's awesome but... lol, it doesn't have to be DTS:X for it to sound like what you heard in Divergent. You just gotta get the right movie sound mix played back.

So instead of just looking for...

Multiple subs is always better than a single.

I'd go with two or more, always. It's up to you. It's your build. 5-10cuft per driver is a wide range but all sizes would work well. You gain more...

First of all... it won't be a "full 2,500w" to a single driver if you bridge it. It's more like ~1,600w or so in the subwoofer range. But that's still good!
